I agreed with literally everything you just said. I probably hate Wiz more than JJ although I think they are both terrible defensemen. Wiz is a turnover machine and can NEVER HIT THE NET. God is it frustrating. JJ tries to play forward too much and he's just bad everywhere but he at least doesn't turn it over as much.

I agree, Radulov was more to blame in the loss for his dumb penalties. But everyone is going to remember Oshie against Bob in the shootout.

Comment 15 Feb 2014

Man I'd be so much happier if that didn't come against Bobrovsky. I feel terrible for him. Oshie had his number big time and he just went over and over and over.

Jason said they removed that because they were getting serial downvoters who would just track specific users based on the Recent Comments list. If that's the case I don't have a problem with not having it but I think just pointing to where most people are commenting could help. It just takes away the commenter identifier.

I think we will see a repeat of the 2010 finals with USA vs Canada...but this time it really could go either way.

I like the new design but I do have a gripe about the comment layouts. On one hand the fonts and spacing make them easier to read but on the other they take up so much space on my screen that I can't see many comments at one time. It feels like I'm on landscape mode on a mobile when I'm just on a laptop. I just kinda feel like the font size and line spacing could shrink a little bit. I'm forced to scroll almost nonstop and it's annoying.

So far the morning has been dedicated to ice dancing... I don't have a problem with figure skating but dancing should not be a sport. 

Comment 08 Feb 2014

It's shuffleboard on ice. What's not to love?

I have the same phone and was also encountering this problem... just saying so they know it is not an isolated incident.

Joe Berger posted a reaction video on Twitter but it doesn't have playback it only downloads so I uploaded it to youtube. It's still dark but it covers the whole play.

From the opinion of someone who has pretty much only watched games from the student sections...I think a lot of the student "traditions" need a revamp. Most have become pretty lifeless. The first is 7 Nation Army which is obviously beating a dead horse but it was cool and really effective just a couple years ago, now I'd say only about 30% of students actually do it. The next example would be the kickoff chant (the one we aren't supposed to yell). It used to be funny and you could hear actual emotion but now it is has literally become part of the kickoff chant to the point people just say it because they think they are supposed to. The whole kickoff chant is rushed and students don't even yell it anymore they just say it. And then during the game there isn't much to get the fans riled up anymore. Even the 3rd down Hells Bells isn't working as well as it used to and that's why they now need to have Eddie George yell at us from the scoreboard. Then there's the new 3rd down thing where students are supposed to hold up 3 fingers, I don't even know how that started but I find it completely ineffective. Everyone knows what down it is we should be more focused on just screaming as loud as we can instead of holding up fingers. 

Believe it or not I now find the stadium most intimidating when everyone is the south stands start stomping their feet in addition to yelling. The rumble adds a pretty good effect and makes up for those who don't yell and its too bad that can only be done in one part of the stadium.

Ha, ok funny story... The earth science class I was TA'ing took a field trip to the Geology Museum and walked in literally while the shoot was taking place. The door is open and everyone is scattered so I would say it was probably over at this point but originally there were about 25 students walking in a circle around the lobby with Craft standing there spinning the ball on his finger for the cameras. It was pretty goofy looking.

It wasn't that bad of a hit but there was another player right behind him which led to an awkward collision and probably a bad case of whiplash. It still was a penalty though.

Supposedly this is the "deepest" conference in the country. They sure do beat up on each other don't they... heh

Comment 01 Dec 2012

The whole season Hankins has been rated as the number 1 or 2 defensive tackle to be drafted and is a top ten pick on nearly every draft board. Frankly he would be really dumb not to go.
